Four Afghan Guantanamo Bay detainees repatriated: Pentagon

Four detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay US military prison have been repatriated to Afghan, the Pentagon said Sunday.The US Department of Defense said that the Afghan men- Shawali Khan, Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani, and Mohammed Zahir- had been moved from the prison after a comprehensive review of their case. “As a result of that review, which examined a number of factors, including security issues, these men were approved for transfer by the six departments and agencies comprising the task force,” a Pentagon statement said.The releases come hard on the heels of the transfer of six Guantanamo detainees to start new lives in Uruguay earlier this month.
